Victor Haze commented on Matt Currie's blog post Can you help me validate an idea for a software tool for design thinkers?
"I think the idea of qualitative data analysis is something the SDT community will be keen on. There are some good tools for that out there but they are pricy and might not offer all the real SDT functionality a service designer is looking for. So I…"
